About

Started in 2011, the Semester in Sustainable Design/Build is an ongoing partnership between Yestermorrow Design/Build School (Waitsfield, VT) and UMass Amherst’s Department of Architecture (Amherst, MA).  Operating annually from mid-August to mid-December, the Semester Program takes up to 15 undergraduates and recent graduates through an architectural design process to the substantial completion of a single, high-performance, year-round structure.  Students, while completing a 15-credit course load, receive instruction in design, assembly and detailing, and building performance while exploring group process, definitions of sustainability, and relevant contexts.  This full-immersion, credit-bearing semester in green building and design complements architecture, building science, engineering, and environmental design majors and has wide application in liberal arts curricula
